After the standard-shifting success of his 2021 album, Dangerous, few suspected that any artist - let alone Morgan Wallen himself - could emulate the popularity of that record.

However, following the release of his new project, One Thing At A Time, on March 3, it seems Wallen is on track to somehow surpass the streaming figures and chart records set by Dangerous.

This week, he racked up more simultaneous entries on Billboard's Hot 100 than any other artist in the chart's history.

All 36 of the songs on One Thing At A Time now sit on the chart, breaking Drake's previous record of 27. Taylor Swift follows closely behind with 26.

News of the Sneedville megastar's latest achievement comes shortly after One Thing At A Time hit No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

The hit-ridden project has also leapt straight to the top spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums ranking.

It's safe to say March will continue to be a busy month for Morgan Wallen, as he heads Down Under for the Australia and New Zealand leg of his world tour, which kicks off on March 15.

Attendees will be hoping he performs anthems such as ‘Wasted On You’ and ‘You Proof’, both of which recently earned Wallen a couple of 2023 CMT Award nominations.

Ticket-holders will no doubt also be serenaded with some of the more vulnerable ballads from One Thing At A Time, such as ‘Keith Whitley’, ‘Man Made A Bar’, ‘Dying Man’ and ‘Thought You Should Know’.
